What sizes are available?
Tekstur Panels come in various sizes depending on the material. The paper-phenolic panels are available in 4’ x 10’ panels and range from 1/8” to 3⁄4” in thickness. The cork panels are 2’ x 3’ and range in thickness from 3⁄4” to 2”. Due to the tight tolerances in manufacturing, panels can be sequenced for long, uninterrupted runs.

What tools & techniques are needed to fabricate a Tekstur panel?
Tekstur Panels can be fabricated with traditional woodworking tools and processes. The panels can be cut and machined to high tolerances without splitting or tear out. The surfaces need minimal treatment and in some applications may not need any additional applied finishes. Please download the Fabrication Manual for comprehensive fabrication and installation instructions.
How do I install a Tekstur panel?
Tekstur Panels can be installed with standard industry products and processes. We recommend the Button-Fix and Monarch Z-Clip systems, as well as, a line of specialty industrial tapes. Please consult with ones of our expert sales people to recommend the best system for your project.
Can I glue Tekstur Panels directly to the wall?
We do not recommend gluing Tekstur panels directly to the wall. Tekstur panels are generally classified as full thickness millwork panels and should be installed along the same guidelines as architectural grade plywood plywood and/or full thickness composite panels. In some cases when a “veneered” application is needed, for example curved or bent lamination, 1/8” thick Tekstur panels can be laminated to a bendable substrate such as kerf core plywood. A full glue spread is required.
How do I maintain a Tekstur Panel after it has been installed?
Maintenance will vary depending on the chosen material and its application. Because of it’s durable attributes, the recycled paper-phenolic panels will typically need very little maintenance. If there is scuffing, in most cases, wiping the surface without a mild soap & water mixture will remove the scuff. If the panels somehow take on severe damage, you can order a duplicate replacement panel.
